These Dog's are Not Afraid of Thunder
Submitted By Kcarey on Sunday, November 7, 2010
The Bantam Rep travelled to Zurich for a Friday night game.  The first period was a little sluggish for both teams as apparently it was a tough day off school with a PA day.

Mike VanWyk got Blyth on the scoreboard with 3:31 left in the first with the assists going to his brother Matt, and Wyatt Carey. With less than two minutes left in the first Zurich put one by Blyth net minder Dalton Carey, there was some talk that the assist on that goal might go to his brother Wyatt. This is the second time this year this debate has taken place. It should be noted that this crushed any hopes of his brother getting that third shut out in a row. So the first period ended in a tie at one a piece.

The second period was dominated by Blyth at both ends of the ice. Dustin Pennington with a pass from Kyle Pollard was the first to strike for Blyth. The second goal of the period was scored with a “Scooby doo” by Wyatt Carey, likely feeling bad for assisting on Zurich’s goal. It should also be noted that he may not have assisted. The third goal of the period was another unassisted goal, this time by Matt VanWyk. So at the end of the second period it ended with Blyth up 4 to 1. The Dogs headed to the change room for that speech by Coach Scott.

The Dogs came out for the third with a decent lead, but that is not always a good thing. Zurich was able to catch the Dogs and snuck their second puck of the game by Dalton. Spencer Stevenson soon struck back getting one in Zurich’s net on a nifty pass from Matt. Blyth’s sixth goal came on a great shot from Matt. The final buzzer went with Blyth up 6 to 2.

The Dogs only had two players Wyatt and Mike penalized and unfortunately each got two.

The Dog’s next game is in Blyth this Sunday (November 14) at 5:30pm when Wingham makes the trip to the Dog Pound.
